With Modern Business Intelligence (BI) making analytics more accessible than ever, it’s no wonder why everyone is trying to get in on the action. Successful business intelligence initiatives allow organizations to leverage vast amounts of data to accelerate time to insight and decision-making.
However, according to Gartner, nearly 70% of all BI initiatives fall short of meeting expectations, with low user adoption due to lack of analytical skills being a primary reason why.
NLG and Modern BI - A Powerful Partnership
That’s why six months ago we announced Narratives for Qlik®, an easy-to-use extension for Qlik Sense® that automatically explains the most important insights within BI visualizations through Advanced Natural Language Generation (NLG). The product unlocks the full value potential of Modern BI by enabling all users, regardless of technical skill, to make faster and smarter business decisions through an intuitive data discovery experience.
In just a few months, we were thrilled to win Qlik’s Innovative Partner of the Year Award and to hear Gartner say that, “due to NLG's potentially beneficial impact on the expansion of analytics to a broader audience, NLG will be a feature of most modern BI and analytics platforms by 2018.” (Gartner, 2016 Hype Cycle for BI and Analytics).
